Xbox 360 users - with Live Gold memberships, who also pay separately the following services - now have access to MLB.TV, HBO GO, and Comcast's Xfinity video content. Microsoft rolled out the three applications today as part of its ongoing strategy of turning their console into a living room legend. The new HBO GO app provides access to HBO's entire catalog, including current hits like Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. The Comcast Xfinity TV app is available to both Xfinity TV and Internet customers anywhere Comcast delivers its services. Baseball fans with a a premium Major Leave Baseball TV subscription in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. can watch live and archived games via the MLB.TV app.
The Xbox 360 is about add another round to its bullet list of features. HBO Go, HBO's streaming video service, is expected to be up and running on April 1. Should we read anything into the April Fools Day timing? Probably not. Of course, you could say the fact that you'll need a cable TV subscription (and a provider that plays nice), HBO subscription, and Xbox Live gold subscription is a prank in and of itself, but so be it. HBO co-president Eric Kessler says the app will allow users to access movies, special features and every episode of nearly every HBO series.
Just in case you missed the news that HBO GO and MAX GO are now available for Time Warner Cable customers, we thought we'd post an addendum to the earlier news of the official launch of the service after a short beta testing period. HBO GO and MAX GO are available for supporting devices via apps, which can be found on the iTunes store and Android Market.
Cablevision and HBO have partnered to offer HBO GO and MAX GO to iO TV customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax. The new agreement between the two companies means that subscribers will soon be able to access HBO and Cinemax content on a PC, Apple iPad, iPhone, or iTouch device, as well as supported Android tablets and smartphones.
HBO Go, the streaming service that carries about 1,400 titles in SD (standard-definition) & HD (high-definition), is now available for DirecTV subscribers online. Customers can simply use their DirecTV username/password to log-in and access the content.
